Sure. I'll try that first. Thanks!
And my DAVE balanced is 6V. Going balanced doubles it.
new mid-priced Holo coming, still R2R, with 4pin headphone jack
That's why I wrote that I believe that the DIR in the Spring is excellent. It just needs to have a clear removal of EMI, electrical, RFI impurities and jitter to sound really good.
Any more info, like where you read this, or some photos?
Wildism HK confirmed to me that yes there is an incoming DAC lower than the Spring. He didn't provide details as he has not received the demo unit yet.
I've read that yggy needs 3 to 4 days to warm up. Does this apply to any R2R Dac or just yggy? Does the spring dac works the same way?
Agreed. I got the Eitr because there were consistently very good reviews from people I trust about its ability to reduce electrical noise, and at its low price compared with the competition it would be a nice gadget to have around. I've tested it against other setups with my KTE 3 and with a Bifrost (pre-gen 5), the results have been uniformly good. I'll be asking my wife to do some comparative listening this weekend: she has a very musical ear, and she doesn't care about gear, so she's the perfect subject for a more objective comparison
ve seen the fotos, just a Spring look alike but smaller, same color style
Yes to Holo and other R2R DAC
!!? You mean I have to leave my HS/SU-1 on? Could I just leave it in Standby when not using? Would that be considered as "warming up" too?
I leave mine on with no issues. You can leave it on or in STBY with no issues and there is a minimal (2 watt, IIRC) power draw difference.
Leaving it in STBY does the same thing. It keeps the circuits warm.
I am thinking of selling my Spring DAC LVL 3. In brand new condition, hardly used. Need the funds for a new mountain bike. I am wanting USD 2k. Send me a PM.
Interesting, I was told the Spring DAC used a typically available, off the shelf chip to internally convert USB to the needed I2S signal.
Searching the web for a while produced nothing conclusive. Do you have specific information on how USB conversion is done on the Spring?
I don't have an info for how the USB conversion is done unfortunately.
